Correct Answer: C

Simplicity and reflection are core agile practices. Simplicity, "the art of maximizing the amount of work not done", is one of the Agile Manifesto principles. Reflection is in the center of iteration retrospectives aimed to improve the team's process and performance. Focusing on reflection and simplicity will most likely help the team improve its process, making this the best answer to the question asked.
